  1. Have you brewed this again? If so, how did it turn out? Would you say the AHS kit is close to the real deal or not so close?
  2. BYO has a recipe for Andygator in the October 2012 issue. ------- Abita Brewing Co. AndyGator clone (5 gallons/19 L, all-grain) OG = 1.078 FG = 1.017 IBU = 25 SRM = 8 ABV = 8% Ingredients 6.6 lbs. (3 kg) Briess Pilsner unhopped liquid malt extract 2.0 lbs. (0.9 kg) dried malt extract 3.0 lb. (1.36 kg) Pilsner malt 6.2 AAU Perle hop pellets (60 min.) (0.75 oz./21.3 g of 8.25 % alpha acids) 2.1 AAU Perle hop pellets (30 min.) (0.25 oz./7.1 g of 8.25 % alpha acids) 4.1 AAU Perle hop pellets (5 min.) (0.5 oz./14.2 g of 8.25 % alpha acids) ½ Tsp. yeast nutrient (last 15 min.) ½ Tsp. Irish moss (last 30 min.) White Labs WLP 830 (German Lager) or Wyeast 2308 (Munich Lager) yeast 0.75 cup (150g) of corn sugar for priming (if bottling) Step by Step Steep the crushed grain in 2 gallons (7.6 L) of water at 154 ºF (67.8 ºC) for 30 minutes. Remove grains from the wort and rinse with 2 quarts (1.8 L) of hot water. Add the liquid and dried malt extracts and boil for 60 minutes. While boiling, add the hops, Irish moss and yeast nutrient as per the schedule. Now add the wort to 2 gallons (7.6 L) of cold water in the sanitized fermenter and top off with cold water up to 5 gallons (19 L). Cool the wort to 75 ºF (24 ºC). Pitch your yeast and aerate the wort heavily. Allow the beer to cool over the next few hours to 65 ºF (19 ºC). When evidence of fermentation is apparent drop the temperature to 52 ºF (11 ºC). Hold at that temperature until fermentation is complete (approx. 10 days). Transfer to a carboy, avoiding any splashing to prevent aerating the beer. Condition for 2 weeks at 42 ºF (5º C) and then bottle or keg. Allow to carbonate and age for four weeks and enjoy your Andygator Doppelbock clone. Note: For tips on cooling your fermentation refer to the July/August 2006 issue of Brew Your Own. For more about brewing doppelbock, turn to page 19 of this issue. All-grain option: This is a single step infusion mash using an additional 13 lbs. (5.9 kg) Pilsner malt to replace the liquid and dried malt extracts. Mix the crushed grains with 5.2 gallons (19.7 L) of 174 °F (0 °C) water to stabilize at 154 ºF (67.8 ºC) for 60 minutes. Sparge slowly with 175 ºF (79 ºC) water. Collect approximately 6 gallons (23 L) of wort runoff to boil for 60 minutes. Reduce the 60-minute hop addition to 0.6 oz. (17 g) of Perle hop pellets (5.0 AAU) to allow for the higher utilization factor of a full wort boil. The remainder of this recipe and procedures are the same as the extract with grains recipe.
  3. Any updates on a re-brew? I have not had a chance yet to brew this but plan on it soon.
  4. I visited Stone in April of this year. What a cool brewery. Someday I would like to vist Rogue.
  5. WLP007 was a weird beast. As a first time user, it freaked me out as it lumps, chunks, congeals, etc. I've never seen anything like it before. It likes to stick together. After a minute rest, the starter was near solid at the bottom. Enough so that the stir bar had to be coaxed around with a strong magnet to get it moving freely. Comeing from Wyest packs, it seemed strange. Nonetheless, it works like a champ. Youtube "WLP007" to see this stuff in action. It looks like egg drop soup on a stir plate.
  6. I'm waiting for my batch of Arrogant Bastard to finish up too, not the double, the original. It's been 13 days since pitching the yeast and, while I didn't take a gravity reading yet, I know it's done. WLP007 chewed through the wort quickly, in about 4 days. Inkleg - looks good!
  7. Beer-lord - no, AHS does not publish what is in their kits. You'll get the ingredients when the package arrives, but not before hand. It makes selecting a "clone" difficult if you're looking for something specific.
  8. Inkleg - do you have the ability to scan the instruction sheet? How long ago did you buy the kit from AHS? Maybe they changed it since then? Thank you again for the help.
  9. How long ago did you buy your kit from AHS? Thier kit now lists Double Bastard as 19.5 pounds of base malt. Did they modify it for you before shipping?
  10. Oh yeah! I got mail. Thank you! How you like BIAB? I mash in a bag (voile) and hop in a 200 micron bag and love it. No stuck sparges here.
  11. Arg ... it says "Attachment Tobias² Ale.bsm not found". Can you email it to me? rpksale1@Hotmail.com Maybe it's the ^2 that is throwing it off ...
  12. Inkleg - any updates on the .bsmx file? Double Bastard is $6.99 here in Las Vegas, at Total Wine and More. I have an old $2 off coupon with no expiration date. Still have the image file from a newsletter I got from them a long time ago. They still honor it. That takes me down to $4.99 for the Double Bastard
  13. No worries. I'll probably queue this up for an upcoming batch this year. I brewed the CYBI Arrogant Bastard rebrew # 2 (90% two row, 10% Special this past Saturday. Everything came out perfect and the beer is now fermenting at 69 (F). I can't wait to taste it. The pre-fermented wort tasted pretty damned good.
  14. Your post says "Attachment Tobias² Ale.bsmx not found". Do you mind emailing it? rpksale1@hotmail.com
